You know, it’s that time of year and everyone is run down and feeling yucky. So, it’s no surprise that a supportive boost might come in handy which is why I decided to pick up this sample of Sisu to Go Lemon Lime Ester-C Energy Boost Vitamin Drink Mix Powder from my local health food store. It was free, it claimed to be an energy boost of sorts, and I was intrigued enough to pick it up.
What can I say? It was free.
Product Review: What ingredients are in the Sisu to Go Lemon Lime Ester-C Energy Boost Vitamin Drink Mix Powder?
Here are the non-medicinal ingredients that went into making the Sisu to Go Lemon Lime Ester-C Energy Boost Vitamin Drink Mix Powder: calcium carbonate, calcium phosphate monobasic, sodium phosphate monobasic, sodium chloride, citric acid, L-malic acid, L-tartaric acid, stevia rebaudiana leaf, natural lemon-lime flavour, natural tangerine flavour, glycine, L-aspartic acid, D-fructose, silicon dioxide, maltodextrin.
Of the medicinal ingredients, there’s a bunch of them. There’s vitamin C, phosphorus, calcium, magnesium, vitamin B6, niaclinamide, D-pantothenic acid, zinc, manganese, riboflavin, thiamine, folic acid, vitamin B12, and chromium.
PHEW. That’s a mouthful.
My thoughts? I have none. I was barely able to type it all out let alone understand what most of it meant. I will say this, however, it’s a vitamin drink mix powder so some of this stuff is to be expected. I’ve never been interested in vitamin drink mixes before so I haven’t done any research on them. My guess would be that different vitamin drink mixes probably have different compositions so what you choose would likely be determined based on what you felt your body needed.
Thus, my thoughts about the Sisu to Go Lemon Lime Ester-C Energy Boost Vitamin Drink Mix Powder ingredients are completely inconclusive. Guess I’ll just have to rely on taste.
Product Review: So… how does Sisu to Go Lemon Lime Ester-C Energy Boost Vitamin Drink Mix Powder taste?
Here’s what the powder looks like. It’s granular and reminds me of grated sea salt with a few other goodies thrown into the mix.
Uh…I guess the Sisu to Go Lemon Lime Ester-C Energy Boost Vitamin Drink Mix Powder tastes okay? I mean, it tastes like funny flavoured water. I poured the mix into my glass of water at work, I swirled it all together, I stared at it. My clear water changed into a pale yellow drink and I drank it with some hesitation.
The Sisu to Go Lemon Lime Ester-C Energy Boost Vitamin Drink Mix Powder made my water taste faintly of lemon and lime but it tasted artificial. Freshly squeezed lemon juice in water this is not. I’m guessing it would taste ‘different’ because I’m essentially drinking a ground up flavoured vitamin. Well, at least that’s how I see it.
Do I like Sisu to Go Lemon Lime Ester-C Energy Boost Vitamin Drink Mix Powder? I’m not sure. I suppose if I needed the vitamin and mineral boost then this Sisu product would probably be a really good fit. I like that it comes in a convenient pack that makes it extremely portable and thus easy to access when you need it most. Does it have potential? Absolutely.
I don’t know. I’m on the fence about this one. Maybe I just need to try a different flavour.
